In essence it's the previous Player Faction Flag Pack but in a broken down build-your-own-pack style.

There's over unique 2,000 flags/crests to pick from as they are all real flags from every nook and cranny of Japan.

Basic instructions (Or follow the README):

Maybe (?) If not you can use G.I.M.P or any other free image editor and override the image with Flag of your choice.

Click on the google drive link, there's a zip file and a readme there, alongside the folders of various flags and crests that you can download and swap out.

There's over unique 2,000 flags/crests to pick from as they are all real flags from every nook and cranny of Japan.

Basic instructions (Or follow the README):
  • Download the zip file and install it
  • Download the flags/crests of your choice into mod graphics
  • Edit player.faction in mod data

  • Not all flags are added as there's a couple hundred that need retouching/redrawing.
  • If you notice some flags/crests are dodgy, lemme know and I'll fix em (eventually).
  • Some flags with texts and location names have been edited to make them more generic.
  • Feel free to remove the flags/crests already included cause they're just placeholders.

If anyone's interested in adding all the flags at once, I've made a small python script that does all the steps described in the readme for you.

It will move all the pictures into a folder called "custom" (you'll need to merge it with graphics/factions/custom/) and create "jsonified logos.txt" that has all the syntax ready to copy-paste into player.faction.

I've kept it in .py format so you can read it if you want :p

It also turns out "Plain flag" folder has a few duplicates, I've accounted for it in the script in a pretty spaghetti way, but hey, it works.
